    Sometimes, less is more

    I would for someone who loves action that is piled on. The author seemed to feel this needed 3 climaxes. At some point, enough is enough.

    "Dear Albert, Nicola was right." The opening lines of a letter lost is the answer to a question no one ever thought to ask, a question that could well reshape the future of the United States as a world power. Seventy years ago, Chester Bowie, a genius driven to madness, unlocked the mystery of how a weapon of unimaginable lethality allowed one man and his small army to conquer so much of the ancient world. The secret, however, died with Bowie in a fiery disaster that was no accident.
